It’s safe to say hybrid learning—a mix of in-person and remote instruction that evolved quickly during the pandemic—is probably here to stay in K-12 education to some extent. That is the case even though increasing numbers of students and teachers are returning to school buildings this spring for full-time in-person learning, a trend that is expected to continue into the fall.

In a recent EdWeek Research Center survey, a third of principals and district leaders said they expect to have a hybrid model in place this fall. Even those schools where nearly all students will return to fully in-person learning are considering adding various hybrid approaches for some students who prefer the mix of remote and in-person instruction. Some school districts, for instance, launched virtual learning academies or partnered with outside online education providers during the pandemic that they plan to keep.

This webinar will review best practices for hybrid learning on challenges such as concurrent teaching, scheduling, relationship building, equitable learning environments, and use of technology, with a special look at how to make the shift from mostly hybrid to fully in-person instruction, and from fully remote to hybrid, as smooth as possible.
